A trip to Haworth is a must for fans of the Brontë sisters who lived there. Even without the connection to the famous literary family, Haworth would still be a fantastic place to visit with its cobbled streets and rolling moors that make you feel as though you've been transported into another era altogether. Pictured is Top Withens high on the Pennine Moors above Haworth, the ruins have long been associated with the Brontës as the home of the Earnshaw's in Emily Bronte's novel 'Wuthering Heights', even though the buildings bore no resemblance to the house she descibed the situation may have been in her mind when she wrote of the moorland setting of the heights

The Heights of Abraham are a country park with famous show caverns set in 60 acres of woodlands and reached by cable cars over deep limestone gorge in the Peak District. The attraction, which also includes adventure playgrounds, makes for a brilliant family day out, and is just a stone's throw away from the Peak District National Park.
